Spy Gadgets – From MI6 To Modern Day Reality
What comes to mind when you think of spy gadgets? For us, our first thoughts are of James Bond! We think of Q handing 007 the latest in spy technology and explaining to Bond how his awesome inventions work. At the time, these gadgets seemed so far removed from reality and everyday life – a cinematic spectacle!
But the truth behind the fiction was revealed back in 2010 when MI6 excitingly opened some of their old files to the public, documenting the earliest spy gadgets that were used by the service during the first 4 decades of their establishment. MI6 – home to the real-life James Bonds – is a leader in spy gadget creation and an institute that Spy Equipment UK takes great influence and inspiration from.
Unravelling the Spy Gadgets mystery
As a result of MI6 revealing this information on ‘James Bond gadgets’, spy equipment seemed a lot closer to home and accessible. While some of these gadgets may have seemed a little antiquated, the majority of them are timeless – setting the bench for modern-day technology, and playing an integral role in today’s private investigations.
Among the array of specialist spy gadgets, were a matchbox that contained a compact camera, a spy pen that was in fact filled with tear gas to disable an opponent, shaving brushes with secret compartments, and all manner of everyday objects used to conceal cameras or hide information that needed to be covertly transported across borders from one country to another.
